Amazon Breakthrough Novel Contest

So, I found out yesterday that Amazon has a contest for unpublished or self-published authors and their manuscripts. Basically, the important information is that they’re taking 5,000 general fiction submissions and 5,000 YA submissions, the deadline is between January 24th and February 6th, and the winners in each category get a publishing contract with Penguin Books and a $15,000 advance on royalties. I decided that I’m going to enter the novel I’ve been working on for a little over a year. This is good because it gives me a deadline to try and get most of my revisions done by. My mom’s going to enter too, but she’s entering general fiction, and I’m entering YA. Basically, I’m super excited. Wish me luck in getting it all done!
